Deadline is reporting that Dominic Monaghan is reuniting with JJ Abrams for Star Wars Episode IX. The two previously worked together on the TV series Lost. There is no word on who he will be playing, but the actor has also confirmed his involvement via his official Twitter account.
Dominic Monaghan is joining the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX, Not sure what role he will be playing, but he’s set, and it reunites him with J.J. Abrams, with whom he did the ABC series Lost.
It is also Monaghan’s second billion dollar franchise. He came to fame playing Merry, one of Frodo’s wingman in all three installments of the Peter Jackson-directed The Lord of the Rings trilogy. It is not that surprising that Monaghan might end up in the Star Wars universe. Back in 2014, he publicly expressed his desire to hook back up with Abrams in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now, he’s got his chance.
“The galaxy far far away has had almost as much influence as the one I live in, so I am delighted to be involved,” Monaghan said.
